Landscape transformation: Impact on butterflies and beetles in South-Eastern Australia
Thursday, 24 July 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141
While agricultural pastures may have high biodiversity potential in fragmented landscapes, in many areas around the world, tree plantations are replacing them. Such transformations are likely to impact the distribution of patch-associated species and those that occur more broadly across the landscape.

At the speed of volcanic eruptions
Thursday, 24 July 2014 at 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Leonard Huxley Lecture Theatre, Building #56, Mills Road, ANU
What causes some eruptions to be more explosive than others? Is it the total driving gas fuel, or how fast the gas escapes? This lecture examines both the volatile content and the speed of magma ascent immediately prior to eruption.
SEMINAR
Sectarianism: The threat to Australia
